Sawmill Village in Summerville changes hands for nearly $26M

Another Charleston-area shopping center recently changed hands at nearly twice the price paid for it eight years ago.

Greensboro, N.C.-based Koury Corp. bought the Harris Teeter-anchored Sawmill Village Shopping Center at 680 Bacons Bridge Road in Summerville  on Dec. 16 from Ferncroft Capital of Charlotte for $25.7 million, according to Dorchester County land records.

Ferncroft bought the 13.5-acre retail site in 2013 for $13.46 million, according to property records.

The commercial transaction comes a few days after Stiles Corp. of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., sold the less-than-three-year-old, Publix-anchored Point Hope Commons Shopping Center in Charleston for almost $29 million.

The buyer of the retail center in the sprawling Cainhoy Plantation development on Clements Ferry Road was an affiliate of Prudential Real Estate Advisors of Madison, N.J., according to Berkeley County land records.
